Sports Updates

Well we're really close to march madness and NFL free agency starts tonight. We've already seen some big deals and more to come with Asante Samuel and Randy Moss on the block. Todd Collins of the Washington Redskins also may draw interest from teams such as Miami, but JLC of the Washington Post believes the Redskins are making a play to keep Todd Collins, however if he is assured a starter position I think he will be off to play elsewhere. On the other hand if Randy Moss is offered a big deal, he may leave the Pats and Tom Brady.

In terms of March Madness, we're just sorting out who may make the tourney and who won't. I'm pulling for my Terps but I'm not sure they have the consistency to be contenders.

Sorry about the bad grammar, I'm a bit tired right now trying to stay on top of the Free Agency.

Jim Zorn announced as the next head coach of the Washington Redskins

After more than 30 days of looking for a new head coach Dan Snyder has finally decided on promoting Jim Zorn, former Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks coach, as the new head coach of the Washington Redskins. (He recently signed on as the offensive coordinator. )

Whether Snyder wasn't able to find some one better, was deterred from the hiring Fassel from fan reaction, or was truly impressed with Zorn is unknown. What is known is that Redskins fans seem to have embraced the hire (

The official spin from the Skins is that Zorn was so impressive in interviews that they hired him as the Head Coach: Is it possible that Zorn, formerly a quarterbacks coach, would outperform Saunders or Williams, I think its unlikely but he has recieved high acclaim from those who have worked closely with him including the Hasselbacks. Perhaps his unorthodox teaching methods have wooed Dan Snyder:

I wish him the best of luck coaching the Redskins

Best Super Bowl Ever?

While I feel bad for all my friends who love the Pats, its hard to deny that XLII may be #1. Perhaps surpassing Namath versus Unitas and Redskins over Denver, the giant defeat over the seemingly perfect Pats; a rematch of the last regular season game seems almost surreal.

I feel like those tickets we're worth every penny. I'm sorry Pats fans who bought tickets through us and got let down. Though you have to admit, it was one hell of a ride. To Giants fans who bought tickets through us and saw that game, it sure feels great to put the NFC East back on the map. It also seems to me that this is the first time two brothers have won Super Bowls back to back.

Sorry Pats, but you did make history and your team put up one hell of a game. What to watch next? I would think the Daytona 500 and Eric Clapton will be big.

Also of note Super Bowl 43 or XLIII's Logo

A lot of people have been landing on looking for these tickets, we'll get them up soon!
